From the artsy, to the weird, to the provocative, to the punk. For over ten years, the Freeplay Independent Games Festival has been exploring these vital margins of game culture in Australia, from bedroom coders and artists exploring the possibilities of games, to game culture’s punk rockers and agitators.
Returning after the sold-out 2014 show, in Parallels: The Freeplay 2015 Showcase, ACMI and Freeplay are bringing Australia’s most exciting under-the-radar games projects and creators together to showcase game culture’s parallel worlds.
Watch as local designers demonstrate and play their creations live on stage and discuss their influences and creative passions. Discover new games and game makers, and find out what makes them tick. Join us on a journey to reveal the artistry and talent of Australia’s independent and grassroots game makers.
